Ryan the Scientist (giveaway)

I fully admit we’re a bunch of science nerds in this house. I even have a shirt that says, “I <3 my engineering geek.” Our children are doomed 😉 I love teaching Ryan about everything science related and seeing how excited he gets–I mean, every single thing around us is science and a 3-year-old is just FULL of questions about how things work and why things do what they do… and I tell Ryan about all of it! I was super excited to receive a kit from The Young Scientists Club for Ryan.

The Young Scientists Club is full of award-winning science kits for kids. You can buy just a kit, but they also have a monthly subscription plan, which is awesome. You know how sometimes it’s hard to get a kid excited about something new? It can be hard to get their attention. The Young Scientists Club uses fun themes and popular characters to get your children involved. I mean, who doesn’t love The Magic School Bus and Clifford the Big Red Dog?! There’s also adventure and nature themed kits to choose from.

Five new kits from The Young Scientists Club are shown above. There are 3 with Clifford: Bubble Science, Kitchen Science, and Rainbow Science; and two from The Magic School Bus series: Weather Lab and The Wonders of Nature. Kits range from $19.99 to $39.99 and will open up the world of science to your children–from an exploding volcano and tornado in a bottle to using pipettes and creating a rain cloud!

We received Clifford’s Rainbow Science kit because lately Ryan has been obsessed with mixing colors–since dying Easter eggs in March! It was hard to choose because all of the kits look awesome, but I knew Ryan would especially love this one. It came with a book that was full of experiments–it could easily last an entire week of science time. In the photo above he had used a measuring cup of vegetable oil, a funnel to pour it in the test tube, and a pipette (that he learned how to use in the earlier experiments!) to add food coloring. He shook it up and watched the bubbles form as the coloring wouldn’t mix with the oil. Science is fun! 🙂

The kit really walked you through the experiments with step-by-step instructions and photos, along with text from Clifford and Emily, of course! The experiments started out simple (like learning to use a pipette with water and dropping food coloring into a bowl of milk) and got more complex as Ryan learned new skills (like mixing oil and water in a test tube with food coloring to see the color mix with the water but not with the oil).

The end was “LIKE MAGIC!!!” says Ryan. Baking soda + food coloring + vinegar… a colorful bubble EXPLOSION! Ryan was THRILLED and kept calling it magic. I said, “no, it’s SCIENCE!”
